Privilege may refer to "the pious belief, sanctioned by the Holy See" (Catholic
Dictionary) regarding special assistance from the Blessed Virgin Mary in the
form of her securing a person's early release from purgatory (on the Saturday
after their death). It is particularly associated with the brown scapular. To
obtain this promise, an individual must meet certain stipulations (e.g. wear the
scapular, observe chastity, recite the Little Office of Our Lady daily, etc.).

Sabbatine privilege, may be briefly defined as meaning that Mary's motherly
assistance for her servants in the Scapular Confraternity will continue after
death, and will find effect especially on Saturday (the day consecrated to her
honour), provided that the members fulfill faithfully the not easy conditions
necessary for obtaining this privilege." (Catholic Encyclopedia)
